The 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is currently taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada and poker players from all over the world have flown in. The WSOP announced earlier this week that poker pros can also look forward to the WSOP Europe and WSOP Circuit events taking place at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.
Kings Casino hosted the WSOP Europe edition for the first time in 2017 and it turned out to be a great success. Kings Casino which has the largest poker room in Europe will now host the 2018 edition and is expected to continue to host the WSOP Europe version going forward. This has turned out to be a fruitful partnership between the WSOP and King’s Casino since both parties have committed to a multi-year partnership with no specific end date.
The effectiveness of the partnership also showed in the results of the 2017 WSOP Europe edition which attracted 7,689 entries and more than €25 million euros in prize money.
In a statement, Leon Tsoukernik, owner of King’s Casino, said
It was a dream to host WSOP Europe and I can’t wait to do it again. We hope everyone who came last year comes back for our warm hospitality and generous offerings, and for those who missed out, please join us for Europe’s biggest poker event of the year.
WSOP Europe To Feature €13 Million In GTD Prize Money
According to WSOP executive director Ty Stewart, the WSOP will be bringing a number of bracelet events and at least €13 million in guarantees to the European festival which will be held from October 9 to 28.
Some of the most anticipated events at the WSOP Europe include the 5-day €550 Colossus event which has a €1 million guaranteed prize pool, the €100,000 King’s Super High Roller and the €10,350 Main Event which has a €5 million guarantee.
